Haiku Bob – AFL Round 21 – such and such

Sunday football –
players emerge head-bowed
from their sermons

 

 

blowing a gale –
trees and forwards
stripped of life

 

 

for some
the ball goes only
where the wind wants it to

 

 

two fumbles
and suddenly Dick
in the clear

 

 

late winter squall –
smooth passing
gone with the clouds

 

 

bathed in sunshine
the game an eye-catching
bog of resignation

 

 

glare of the sun
such and such offloads it
to such and such

 

 

wind
no wind, Leroy
doing what he does

 

 

sun sinks low
Daisy sees his chance
and leaps for it
